    Our alumni pursue careers in the military and in civilian life. Regardless of their chosen path, they are prepared to lead because of the rigorous training and academic experience they receive in ROTC at South Carolina.

    We invite all UofSC Army ROTC alumni to connect with the University of South Carolina Alumni Association and its Veterans Alumni Council.
